I don't know why they just don't go back to the old original idea Phil had, namely digitize and put everything up for anyone to download. They could of course sell the downloads and people would not have to hassle over what they "wish" the Dead would release, plus people would not need to contend with the shoddy customer service, late delivery, shoddy packaging ect..

The "vault" I really wish I would be able to hear someday are Owsley's "Sonic Journals" wherever they are. The man recorded everything at every show he worked according to him, including the support bands. A couple of those bands, the Allman Brothers Band and Flying Burrito Brothers, have already seen official releases culled from his recordings.

Well it seems that Wolfgang's Vault will be doing this with it's collection. 15th May 1970/late show is not a bad place to start. Not quite sure how this is going to work legally though. Apparently 15th May 1970 is in the vault so, surely, the Wolfgang's Vault version is either a copy of the master or a different master (i.e. from the Fillmore East crew)? I'm tempted to get it. It seems a lot more straightforward downloading it than screwing around with dead.net/Indian call centre ordering processes.
